Pan Seared Butter Cod

A new fish recipe!!!

Pan Seared Butter Cod

1 pound cod
6 Tbsp unsalted butter, sliced
Seasoning Rub-
1/4 tsp of each garlic salt, salt, pepper, and paprika
4 tablespoons olive oil


Stir together ingredients for seasoning plus olive oil in a small bowl.

Depending on how your cod was cut by the butcher or if you brought already portioned pieces, this recipe calls for 4 pieces of cod. I cut 2 larger pieces in half to make 4 smaller pieces. Pat dry and thinly coat each side of the fish with the seasoning mixture.

Heat 2 Tbsp butter in a large skillet on medium hight heat. Once butter melts and starts to turn brown, add cod to skillet.

Cook 2 minutes on the first side.

Turn heat down to medium. Turn cod over, top with remaining butter and cook another 2-3 minutes. Butter will completely melt and fish will cook through.
